Raqcop = IPCop for Sun Cobalt Raq's.
Raqcop 2.0.5 and 2.0.6 updates are available! 2.0.5 updates the time zone data ahead of next week's time change for many people. The 2.0.5 update also addresses the 'update is old' information message. 2.0.6 fixes a /var/log symlink issue in 'Cop systems as well as updating the version of Raqcop displayed on the lcd during boot by use of sed. There will be no 2.0.5 or 2.0.6 full install images, fresh installs need to use 2.0.4 and then update to 2.0.5 and then 2.0.6 via the updates page of the web gui.
Raqcop 2.0.3 and 2.0.4 updates available as well as iso images for VM install to usb slaved drives. The disk images I will upload as I make them. Important!!! The 2.0.3 update is large enough and detailed enough that the web gui may timeout before the update is finished. The update is still running in the background so DO NOT hit refresh on your browser! Wait a reasonable amount of time and go to the home page first, then to updates if you wish. The 2.0.3 update requires a reboot for the new kernel. The 2.04 update only contains one file and does not require a reboot however, it can be installed after 2.0.3 and then rebooted after 2.0.4 is installed.
Raqcop 2.x.x stable available! New for 2.x.x is Flash and HD Raid-1 thanks to IPCop 2.x.x having Raid-1 capability. The Cobalt rom handles raid with ease. You can get both single disk and flash images, raid image pairs, and an iso to install directly to a usb slaved flash drive or disk via VMWare or Oracle Virtual Box (Free). The images are here.
New to Raqcop 2.x.x is the presence of it's own updates via our server that have their own signature and public key. Like IPCop 2.x.x and it's respective updates, Raqcop is able to download and apply Raqcop unique updates via the web gui. This is much better than 1.4 in general and for Raqcop since Raqcop 1.4 did not have the ability to apply Raqcop unique updates via the web gui, it is better still. Barring hardware failure, you should only have to install Raqcop initially.
All the virtues of IPCop 2.x.x are realized here for Cobalt hardware. A big Thank You goes out to the IPCop Development team for releasing such a nice firewall/router distro to work with and their valuable input to this adaptation of IPCop.

Symantec VelociRaptor Users:
RaqCop also works great on a Symantec VelociRaptor. Some
VelociRaptor's, including the VelociRaptor 500, 700, 1000 and 1100 are nearly identical to Sun Cobalt's in hardware specs. If you own a VelociRaptor
and are looking for a new software upgrade, RaqCop is the Solution for you!
RaqCop.com was founded in October 2007 to utilize the hardened Linux and very stable IPCop Firewall on Sun Cobalt Raq
/ Symantec VelociRaptor Hardware. IPCop is by far the worlds best Linux firewall distribution and paired with a Sun Cobalt Raq or VelociRaptor, it
makes a perfect inexpensive custom router / firewall.

We are currently looking for anyone who could help us with the Front Panel LCD Functionality of the Raq's (Perl Coder Needed).
Currently RaqCop displays bandwidth info on the LCD but the buttons do not have functionality like StrongBolt or the Original
Raq OS from Sun. Any testers are also very welcome! Furthermore, any help from the creators of IPCop is also highly welcome and
would be much appreciated. Thanks for your interest and we hope you enjoy!
